" starts right now. >>> this is "gps," the global public square. welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. pakistan is in the news, of course, with its massive floods and the terrible tragedy that is ensuing there. we'll talk about that soon. but i first wanted to draw your attention to something else that's been going on in pakistan in recent months. this is an al qaeda triple suicide bombing from july, killing 42 and injuring 175. what's strange is that the attack took place at a site of muslim prayer. you might call it a mosque. just before prayer time. why would al qaeda attack a holy place at a time of prayer? because it is a sufi shrine. part of a sect that al qaeda despises and regards as a deadly foe in the real battle it is fighting, the battle within islam. the sufis are a sect of islam originating in south asia. they're all about mysticism, love, brotherhood, and devotion, with very little attention to dogma. they believe in saints, shrines, music, dance, and follow a very liberal interpretation of the koran. sufi poets routinely extol t

on that. i was asked on a visit to the united states on other matters to talk to paul wolfowitz about this issue and to seek to persuade him that it was not sensible to do this. but if it had been possible to resolve things in a more constructive and better way than it turned out to be, it is possible the degree to which threats arose might have faded. but this again is hypothetical. the fact is that the threat increased, was exacerbated by iraq, and caused not only my service but many other services round the world to have to have a major increase in resources to deal with it. in 2003, having had an upgrade in resources after 9/11, which my predecessor agreed, and another small one in -- another one, not small actually, in 2002, by 2003 i found it necessary to ask the prime minister for a doubling of our budget. this is unheard of, it's certainly unheard of today, but he and the treasury and the chancellor accepted that because i was able to demonstrate the scale of the problem that we were confronted by. >> a doubling of your budget because of iraq? >> well, the two are connected. t

if you look at the successful record of immigrants to the united states, whether skilled or unskilled, documented or undocumented, across the last 200 years and particularly in the last 25 years and with the great renaissance of data that we now have at our disposal to analyze more clearly the impact of all types of immigration from 1990 forward, we realize that immigrants, again, skilled and unskilled, lawful and undocumented, bring to the effort of community building and business building and economy building something that is moderately intangible for now. if we work at it for a few more years it will be tangible and we will be able to quantify part of it. it's something that represents itself in generational achievement both for those immigrants who arrive, who form small businesses at a rate which is disproportionately higher than native-born citizens, for their children that in turn achieve at a level that is higher on average than the children of native-born citizens, not to disparage those who come from the united states or come from long lines of families that come from the u
